Written By: Brad Wong 


This is a simple project that can be completed in an afternoon once you've scrounged up all 
the components. 

Step 1 — Quad Roller Skates 

• Gather your materials, you will 

• A pair of shoes

Step 2 

• To make things more comfortable, 
you will want to have as much 
padding over the screws as 
possible. So take whatever you can 
out of the shoe. 

• I pulled out the inserts and another 
layer that was glued down. Be 
careful pulling this stuff out; you 
are going to want to put it back in 
after your trucks are installed. 

Step 3 

» Put masking tape on the soles so 
that you can mark where you want 
to drill.

plate or some other brace to stiffen 
the bottom.
